How to solve "Can't locate Net/ in @INC" in cygwin

 Net:Telnet from Perl is such a useful little program, however, it is not by defualt installed by cgywin. The following is the steps on how to install it yourself.

It is assuming that you have make installed on your system. If it is not, please run the setup.exe again, and expand the "Devel" section to find the make package. 

The next step is to download the Net:Telnet form CPAN

The rest is pretty straightfoward. The instructions are coming with the download. Here is the output from my installation:



$ perl Makefile.PL
Writing Makefile for Net::Telnet
Writing MYMETA.yml

$ make

$ make test

Happy Telneting!!!
